Today's the Day! || I'm Off to New Zealand

LA, 2017
Happy Monday everyone! It's an especially exciting one for me because this evening I'm flying to New Zealand!!! Despite it feeling like it was years away at the start of my recent job, this day seems to have come around so quickly and I can't believe that in a few hours I'm getting on that first flight to get there.

This isn't going to be a very long post - just a quick one to check in as I want to go and soak up my last bit of time with my Mum before I go! But I wanted to mark this day on here in some way because this really feels like I'm starting a completely new chapter in my life and I think days like that are quite rare.

I thought I'd wake up this morning feeling really anxious about the long flight and the fact that I'm going to be away from home for a few months but I have to say the predominant thing I'm feeling is excitement. And it's so bloody lovely to feel this way.

Everyone always says that you learn so much about yourself by travelling and, while I think you learn a lot about yourself through everything you experience in life, I do think travelling teaches you things very fast and in an intense way. It's funny to imagine what kind of things I'll see and do and how they might change me by the time I'm back. (God I'm going to be that insufferable 'gap yah' person aren't I?)

It's just an amazing time in my life and if I don't completely lose my mind on the 30 hour journey there I can't wait to see what's on the other side of this world.

I'm going to leave it there and will hopefully check in again soon - I'm spending a few weeks at my sister's before I go off properly travelling around New Zealand so I'm hoping to have some time to blog but if not I'll be back here when I'm back here! I hope you all have a wonderful week and are enjoying the run up to Christmas!
